    Live performances from various bands intertwined with some explicit, unsimulated shots of a the leads having sex. An interesting film if you like either of those things. I don't think there was a story at all.

    A stimulating experiment, but ultimately empty.

    The sex is pretty good - or at least, it's more realistic than 99% of movie sex, both in that it's unsimulated and not all that sexy - but there's just not that much of a movie here. It's...fine?

    I first saw this film when it came out back in 2004 and it's something I've returned to many times.

    It might not be perfect but I admire what Winterbottom set out to do - depict the life of a relationship through the sexual aspects alone.

    What was interesting on this viewing was how realistic I found this - without going into too many details, I found myself thinking about past 'short-run' relationships and realised, with a little shock, that…

    Its a lovely movie, two actors shows expresses themselves in that short period of time. I think its what one would love to do when given the opportunity.

    The most explicit British film ever made? The film is structured around nine songs, mainly filmed at the Brixton Academy, as we watch the couple's relationship unravel through their sexual exploits. All this footage was unsimulated which was extremely effective. Just as in Foxcatcher we learnt so much about the brothers' relationship as they practice wrestling, so we learn about the couple through sex here. It's extremely intimate and never feels like it's out to shock. Rather it makes for…

    Whatever semblance of a plot was made all the more disjointed by the badly shot concerts. This is an attempt at erotic arthouse, that results in a bad porno.

    For an hour long movie, this is way too drawn out. It shouldn't have been made at all, never mind cutting it down.

    This art film is an overrated turkey. It’s like watching straight porn without the cheesy music. The music here is rock - nine concerts not even covered well.

    A bit pretentious, but what artsy erotic film isn't? Eh, I liked it anyway. I just would have liked to see the characters developed a bit more.

    Michael Winterbottom’s most controversial film is about a British glaciologist (Kieran O’Brien) and an American exchange student (Margo Stilley) who meet at a concert in London and embark on a passionate sexual love affair, which seems to reach its most transcendent peaks after they immerse themselves in live music. Cutting between real, explicit sex and a snapshot of indie rock as it stood in 2004 – Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Von Bondies, Elbow, Primal Scream, The Dandy Warhols, Super…
